Crash beats Brokeback but Ang Lee wins it for the Asians!
Finally, its all over, the 78th Annual Academy Awards comes to a close with Crash thumping Brokeback Mountain to win Best Motion Picture. So, as everyone had predicted, Crash came up tops and pulled off an upset win over Brokeback Mountain for the top accolade.
However, its not a lost as I am immensely happy for Ang Lee, the Taiwanese director of Brokeback Mountain who has made history with his expected win in the Best Achievement in Directing category. He is the first Asian to win Best Director and he fully deserves it after losing out on the same category for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Hooray for Ang Lee!
That’s all, folks!
